Hi all, I'm looking for a killer comment I saw once that had the whole content of what I believe was a debt validation letter? It included quotes from the various laws. It was badass! Now I can't find it... Do you guys know it? [more inside]
Spring training for the Metafilter Fantasy Baseball league's ninth season has begun. Instructions for interested GMs follow. [more inside]
My name is Ardiril (aka mischief), and I am an internet troll personality
[via NickySkye]. I am not the only troll here. With this post, I remove my option of denial. Who else among you will accept my challenge to change? [more inside]
I seem to recall several years ago a post to the blue that featured a YouTube video of some ragga/dancehall song from the 80s. The song lyrics and video featured a dreadlocked Jamaican who encountered a policeman. I think the policeman called the first guy "Dreadlocks." Dreadlocks claimed to be transporting vegetables to town, but the policeman thought he had marijuana and arrested him.
I have tried many Google search strategies and haven't found this. Did it really appear on the blue or am I imagining things?
A December tradition around here is taking a collective whack at the King William's College General Knowledge Paper (or Quiz). The answers have been published, so we can have a look at how we did. Here's our solvathon discussion
. Our answers were recorded in this Google Doc
created by rewil
. I have now added to that, as Column C, the official answers as released by the college (PDF)
. (Guardian link for same
.) On the Google Doc, our answers are in Col. D. Red shading indicates our wrong answers, of which there are 14, out of 180. So we got a 92.2. (You might quibble with a few of the official answers, though.)
I flagged something today while reading on my mobile, that five seconds later I realised I did not need to flag for the reason I gave. I could not unflag the comment and I fretted over this for ten minutes guiltily. Previously I have also flagged and favourited things by accident because of the fat fingers/tiny screen while reading metafilter on my phone.
Is it technically and/or operationally possible to change the "Flagged" text to a link to either undo the flag/change it or to go straight to the moderators contact page? Or perhaps a "Scourge thyself, blamer of innocents" button would work for me. I'm posting to metatalk because I don't know if this is just a me being dumb on my phone issue or others would also like this added.
Yesterday's FPP about aedison's misgendering while in detention
went... not so well. Some thoughts on what went wrong and how threads like this could go better inside. [more inside]
Just something I've always noticed on askme threads about pursuing a romantic interest - everyone's advocating the use of the word 'date,' and it somewhat surprises me. [more inside]
For those of you wondering what the status of the Camp MeFi
project is, please pull a log up to the crackling fire. Full update inside. [more inside]
We can click birthdays in user profiles to find MeFites who share the same birthday, and we can click locations to find other MeFites who are geographically close. How about a clickable join-date to find MeFites who joined on the same day (+/- N yrs)? It would be like a pony crossed from the old-timers thread
and bondcliff's birthday pony
! [more inside]
